Tire Cover - Dual Axle

My trailer has incredibly low towing miles on it but it sits outside in the sun all summer long. Last year I had to replace a tire because of it. This year I'm going to get some covers.

Anyone have any suggestions? Dual axle. 215/75R14 tires. So I'm about 26.7 inches in diameter and the cutoffs on the covers seems to be 27". Better to go with one that is "up to 27" or "27-29"?

Why not remove the tires and put them in your garage and keep the trailer supported on blocks?

This is as close to a perfect fit as I know of. If you have ST205/75R14 there is a little extra room.

I use a piece of plywood (dimensions 2' x 4') that I lean up against the trailer on the south side to combat sun exposure. Quick to set up and take down.

For 17.00 I'd do the amazon route. Plywood laying on a trailer will wear the paint off due to the wind.

Thanks guys. I went with the ones on Amazon. That was about 1/2 the price of what I was finding elsewhere so snagged them.

Storing the tires in the garage won't work, Rockman. The lake house is shared with the rest of the family and the garage is already completely full of worthless crap that I can't get them to toss out. It's ridiculous.

i recently bought tire covers off ebay. i believe i got all 4 for about 30 bucks shipped. they are a tan color and dont match my red trailer, but they will do the job. Trailer stays at a storage place so looks are not anywhere high on my priority list.
